Will I have a roommate?
No, you will have your own room at the Meritage Resort and Spa as well as the InterContinental, San Francisco, unless you register a guest.
Can a Consultant bring a Business Partner/Spouse to the Premier V Trip?
Business Partner/Spouse packages are based on availability. A guest may be a Spouse/Significant Other or Business Partner only and must be 21 years or older. A Spouse or Significant Other is defined as your marital or life partner. They may not be a fellow Consultant with a separate R+F Consultantship. Should your Spouse or Significant other have their own Consultant Account please submit an exception request to PremierVTrip@rodanandfields.com prior to the close of registration. Additional details will be communicated to qualifiers after the close of August 2017 Commission Period.
Who is considered a Business Partner? 
A Business Partner, as defined in the Policies and Procedures, is the individual with whom you share your R+F “Business Entity.” The Business Partnership is an approved corporation, limited liability company, or partnership of any nature or trust. A Business Partner refers only to the Consultant noted on your shared Consultantship as approved by Rodan + Fields. A Business Partner does not refer to a fellow Rodan + Fields Consultant with their own Consultant Identification Number, a “power partner” or friend who does not meet the criteria of Spouse or Significant Other.
Are there any additional fees if a Consultant chooses to bring a Business Partner/Spouse?
Yes, a Business Partner/Spouse will be required to pay a fee to attend the event. The designated guest fee must be paid in full during registration. The guest fee for the Premier V Trip is $1,750.
Is my Business Partner/Spouse allowed to participate in all of the trip activities? 
Some activities may be restricted to Premier V Program Achievers only.
I want to have my spouse stay with me but not pay to have her/him participate; is this possible? 
The Spouse/Business Partner fee is designed to ensure both you and your partner experience the full value of attending the Premier V Trip, including once-in-a-lifetime activities and training designed to grow your businesses and foster your continued leadership. We strongly encourage your partner’s full participation by selecting the spouse upgrade package. Due to the limited number of spouse/partner packages available, we are only able to make this option available to partners who attend all activities and sessions. If you would like your partner to participate, please select the spouse upgrade.
How can I extend my hotel reservation(s) past the dates of the event? 
If you plan to arrive earlier or depart later than the dates of the event, please complete your registration. We will contact the hotels for availability and will confirm whether your hotel reservation can be extended. Please note that Rodan + Fields will only cover the room costs for the duration of the trip, and any night(s) added on will be at your own expense.


Should I book my own flight?
No, please complete the registration travel form. An R+F Travel Ambassador will contact you via e-mail within five business days to confirm your flight. Through this process, the cost of your flight will be compliments of Rodan + Fields.
How do I book my flight?
In order for your flight to be booked, you must register for the trip via the registration link sent to you on Tuesday, September 19, 2017, with the subject: Fall 2017 Premier V Trip - Time to Register. Click here to review details about the flight booking process.
Why do we need to land by 1:00 p.m.?
Flights will need to arrive at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) by 1:00 p.m. to transfer to the R+F Home Office to register and tour the Home Office on Thursday, November 9, 2017. After the Home Office Experience, you will be transferred to your respective hotels. The transfer will be approximately an hour and a half to the Meritage Resort in Napa and fifteen minutes to the InterContinental Hotel San Francisco. We would like for you to have time to settle into your room and refresh prior to the Welcome Reception at 6:00 p.m.
What happens if I confirm my flight after 5 p.m. Friday, October 13, 2017?
If your airfare is not confirmed by 5 p.m. PT on Friday, October 13, 2017, you will be responsible for the difference in cost between the estimated airfare on Friday, October 13, 2017, and the actual cost on the date booked.
I live in Hawaii; do I have to take a redeye?
Due to the time difference between Hawaii and California, and the need to arrive in Napa for a 5:30 p.m. event start on Monday, your proposed flight will be a redeye departing on the evening of Wednesday, November 8, 2017. Upon arrival at SFO on Thursday morning, you will be transported by shuttle to the R+F Home Office and on to Napa or San Francisco for an early check-in. If you elect to extend your trip with an early arrival date, a redeye flight is not necessary.
What time should I schedule my flight on Monday?
Departures on Monday are at your leisure, as there are no planned activities.
Is the cost of baggage included?
No, the cost of baggage is the responsibility of each individual Consultant.
